PCGS authenticated and graded MS 63 BN. Frosty light olive and steel. A small spot of reddish chocolate brown toning left of star 6, another in the dentils over the left side of star 8, and a less-visible one resting on the L in LIBERTY are the best identifying marks. MDS, die state c early (Newcomb’s old #16 early). Die clashmarks show at the throat and chin as well as at the base of the neck, and a few remnants of the die lines at the inner curl remain visible. The dull waves sometimes found on the reverse at D and STAT are not present and the reverse is uncracked. The surfaces are lustrous and this cent has excellent eye appeal. Tied for CC#12 in the Noyes census, his photo #55096. Tied for CC#29 in the Grellman census. Comes with a nice provenance. CAC Certified.
